If you are planning a trip to Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, then you should consider staying on-site at Loews Portofino Bay!  This amazing luxury resort is just a boat ride or walk away from Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios and Citywalk, and you’ll be able to get free Universal Express Unlimited which allows you to skip the regular lines in Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure (a huge time saver!) as long as you have valid admission (and you can purchase Universal tickets at a discounted rate through Undercover Tourist).  The hotel has a great Italy theme to it, and you will be able to see the great theming in the video we made from our last visit to Portofino Bay, as well as the hotel’s pools, arcade, etc.  The hotel has 3 themed pools, 8 restaurants and lounges with delicious Italian food, a spa, available suites, etc.

And when you go to book, make sure you book directly through Loews Portofino Bay’s website, where you’ll be able to save up to 35% off stays.
